Looks a lot like Coleus 'Indian Summer' but nothing like Alternanthera ficoidea 'Red Threads.'

@purpleinopp. Tiffany, I bet the Alternanthera is the plant below the coleus. If you open up the picture and page down toward the bottom I think you'll see it.Check it out and see what you think.

The caption for the photo indicates "bottom of pic", actually in front of the coleus.

Oooh, you're right! I dismissed it as mulch when I looked before. Sorry to disturb everyone & TY for the help. DUH to me!
